Outriders PS5 and Xbox Series X details will come ‘later’

Outriders is coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series X sometime during holiday 2020. While that was revealed during the game’s trailer from earlier in the week, we’re going to have to wait a little longer to find out about those versions. People Can Fly Studio Head Sebastian Wojciechowski told us that the team wanted to treat this re-reveal as its own event before getting more into the nitty gritty of what the PS5 and Xbox Series X can do.

The game is also coming during the launch window of the new consoles and not the actual launch. But when pressed on the consoles themselves, Wojciechowski was hesitant to give details about these mysterious pieces of hardware.

We are treating this as a reveal event,” he stated plainly. “We want everybody to experience the game for the first three hours rather than talk about hardware and that kind of stuff. That’s why we decided that we will only talk about the game this time and about how cool it is. Later, we will talk about either a new class or about hardware specifications and whatnot.”

It’s not clear when “later” is, especially as Sony and Microsoft haven’t held their big reveal extravaganzas yet. It would be hard to say if that is the only thing holding People Can Fly back from yielding more juicy details as the game is still a bit away regardless of version. All of this time will hopefully make the game more exciting.

However, the urge to acknowledge the platforms is refreshing as we are likely just on the cusp of more big reveals that will usher in a new age. People Can Fly is just one of the first studios to take that very small leap. The game was initially revealed as a PS4, Xbox One, and PC title last June and wasn’t only recently re-revealed as a cross-gen title too.
